ONTARIO, OH- Miss Ohio Week kicked off on Saturday evening at the Richland Mall with the Miss Ohio Fashion Show.

The show featured Miss Ohio contestants modeling the latest Richland Mall fashions.  Miss Ohio 2018, Matti-Lynn Chrisman said that show is a way to welcome the contestants to Mansfield.

"It's kind of the welcome ceremony of Miss Ohio Week, so you walk the runway at the Miss Ohio competition, so it's good to get that first runway walk out of your system somewhere where you're not being judged and it's just fun and everybody's just loving everything about what's happening," Chrisman said.  "It's a little less nerve-wracking and it gives them a 'welcome to Mansfield' that they can remember."

The Fashion show is a fun way to get the entire community involved with the Miss Ohio Program.

"Throughout the week we have a lot of things that are inside the Renaissance.  Tickets can sometimes be expensive and a little too expensive for some people," Chrisman said.  "So we make sure we do enough things in the community. That way even if you can't come to the Miss Ohio competition, you still get to see all the girls and still have a little bit of the experience."

Chrisman is very grateful to the Mansfield community for all of their support for the program.

"Mansfield gives so much to us, so we should at least give something back to them and the people of their community," Chrisman said.

Miss Ohio 2019 will be crowned on Saturday night at the Renaissance Theatre.

"We're all really excited for the Miss Ohio competition.  It's going to be pretty awesome," Chrisman said. "I would hate to be a judge this year because all of these girls are incredible people."
